I got this to replace a similar coat which I've worn to pieces. I liked the empire waist cut of my old coat better, but this one will do o.k., and the kimono sleeves give it extra room. I wondered if the medium would give me enough room, but it is fine, plenty of room for a heavy sweater. That's just as well, as the fabric is a bit thinner than what I had had (but very soft).

This is a beautiful coat! The fabric is lightweight and very warm. Beautiful top stitching. I was looking for an unstructured shoulder for comfort over suit jackets. This coat is roomy, without bulk and doesn't look like I'm swimming in it. I'm a 4 or 6 on top, with long waist and arms. The 6 fits well and is long enough in the sleeve. Very pleased! Thanks STP.

This coat is perfect for what I needed, a mid weight car coat that is loose enough to go over a blazer & not be too bulky to drive. It's stylish enough for dress and has a lovely soft touch. I ordered a size up because I wanted the room but I don't think I would of had to.

This is a lovely coat that is nicely made. After reading the reviews, I ordered a size down. I am so happy that it fits me perfectly! I won't be needing any alterations at all! I was impressed with how nicely packaged the coat was - on hanger with no wrinkles. I will definitely shop here again! Thanks!

I ordered this gorgeous coat in my usual size 6. I did plan on wearing light sweaters with it. The size 6 is HUGE........I could wear another coat under it!!! I paid shipping again to return it and reordered a four. The body of the four is still roomy and the sleeves are super long. I don't plan on spending more money to ship it back, so I will keep it. I do plan on having the sleeves shortened. The material is beautiful. The plum color is lovely.......not a bright color, more subdued. You can wear the collar opened or button the top and have it close to your neck. After the wait, I am happy with this purchase. Just know, this style runs LARGE. Wish I knew that!

This coat is well constructed and of high quality material. However, it is shaped like a tent. The shoulders are fine, but sleeves are too long (as usual, no big deal), and it is voluminous through the hips and bottom hem, much wider than it appears in the picture. If you do need extra room in the hips and thighs, this coat might work. Otherwise, it's a tent. Had to send it back.

The angora blend makes for a very soft coat. The sz 12 is loose fitting which is what I wanted. I wear it with suits and still have plenty of room to move. Its very well made. A little disappointing that its made in China. The full price is $450. A little pricy for something made in a sweatshop.
